Thanks Ralph for your information.I have found 12 John O'Connors in Galway in Griffiths that could be my John that I'm looking for.About 4 seem to be good possibilities.All 6 of his children were born in Galway someplace, James abt 1829 being one of them.He is the only one that had descendants that carried on besides my husband's line.The 2 sons of James, William and James disappeared from Hudson, NY and through census searches cannot say exactly which they may be since the name is so common. The Hudson NY newspapers are not online so I have no way to see the obits of any O'Connors if they had them.The father John came to the US after the 6 children did and was in Hudson about 9-10 yrs before dying.His naturalization states he was from Londonderry.I think though this is where he sailed from. The information the Columbia Co. Hist. Soc. sent me did not include any of these relatives, nor does the City of Hudson Cemetery have any information on James and his family plot!Yet someone nice enough from Hudson remembered seeing their plot and took pictures for me.I have looked at the site you mentioned before but will take another look again in case I missed their names.Thanks.
